A song a day: Slint - Washer

Good Morning, Captain is no doubt the rightful centrepiece of Spiderland but Washer comes in a close second. The thing that strikes me about this song is that the members of Mogwai must have heard it (if not studied it closely) because it sounds like a template for many early early Mogwai songs (excepting the vocals). The thing about this song and Spiderland in general is that it hasn't aged at all and sounds somehow outside of history - a statement of musical purity that defies time and space. --
